Men Get Breast Cancer Too

Last month, Susan G. Komen hosted a Facebook Live conversation discussing breast cancer in men. Dr. Jose Pablo Leone and patient advocate Michael Singer answered questions and discussed stigmas associated with men and breast cancer. Even though breast cancer is more prevalent in women, men are still at risk for developing breast cancer and have a higher mortality rate due to lack of awareness.

Pink Facts 

Your donations help fund and research breast cancer treatments. Breast cancer treatment options vary depending on the type and stage of breast cancer. Cancer removed from a limited area is known as local therapy. Systemic therapy is used when the cancer has moved to other parts of the body, using drug therapies to fight cancer cells. Many of these treatments are used in conjunction with one another to rid the body of cancer. Treatments for breast cancer include: 

• Local Therapy
      · Surgery
      · Radiation Therapy

• Systemic Therapy
      · Chemotherapy
      · Hormone Therapy
      · HER2-targeted Therapy
